The article discusses conceptual approaches and methods for assess ing the level of development of digital technologies at coal industry enterprises. The relevance of introducing digital technologies in the

coal industry is undeniable. However, at present, the scientific and methodological apparatus for auditing the digital maturity of coal industry organizations is not fully developed. The authors propose a methodology for auditing the digital maturity of a coal mining enterprise based on a new set of indicators that take into account the

peculiarities of the development of digital technologies in various areas of organizations in the coal mining industry. It will allow for a comprehensive assessment of the level of digitalization of coal mining companies, identifying weaknesses and determining directions for priority development in the field of digitalization.
